Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

Remember hiding under the covers and being swept away by a fantastical tale while clutching a flashlight? Sure, it began with Dick and Jane, but soon you moved on to the more sophisticated Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys. Before you knew it, the journey was out of this world with Tom Swift Jr. and his science-adventure sagas. These illustrations and stories are not lost. They are here just as you remember them in Storybook Culture. Abundantly illustrated, this study in American culture tells the history of the stories, the authors, the illustrators, and the art that sold five generations on the power of the imagination. This sentimental voyage is sure to evoke fond memories of childhood and, if only for a moment, recapture the innocence of youth.
